Well, this was interesting. At home minding my own business when my phone dings letting me know I have a text. Lo and behold it is from another dating app (I won't use the name, but it was one of those popular legit apps). Apparently I had caught some lovely lady's attention and seeing as how I hadn't used the app in awhile I was surprised. I sent a message and we exchanged a few quick messages before she gave me her number to text her. I say okay, let's see. She's just looking for friends anyway and nothing serious or a quick fuck.
Well, after about 15 minutes or so of talking she mentions that she doesn't like the dating app she found me on much. (It is free, but advertises premium memberships for better search results and whatnot) She sends me the link and I haven't heard of it before. I follow it to find its to one of those quick hook up scam sites. I'm just like, ah, I see where this is going. Before I can even finish typing my message she responds with her phone battery is dying and to add her if I join that site. I'm like, sure no problem.
Yeah right. Phones come with chargers. Plug it up. I go back to the app where she found me and no surprise, her profile is gone. Create an anonymous email and make a false profile for this scam site just to see if she does have a profile there (curiosity, what can I say?) and she is nowhere to be found. Wow, can't even follow up with the scam. After checking the registration page more closely after logging out, I discover it does not have an option for girls seeking guys. Just girls seeking girls or girls seeking girls and guys. So apparently there are no straight girls on that site, only lesbians and bi girls.
Since they start you off with a free account that doesn't let you reply to any messages without buying a membership, I thought about just filling out the profile to send real girls looking for me at more legit sites, but decided against it. Probably few legit girls on there if any. It would just direct spam to my inboxes anyway. Ah well.
Anyway, have a happy Halloween.
